Before signing up to use BridgeU, CATS London, part of an international school group with schools in the UK and the US, was using an internal process to manage the university and careers guidance programme for its 250+ co-ed students. They took on BridgeU as a platform that could add to, and possibly take the place of, the function of UCAS for its sixth-formers. Graham Morgan-Smith says the University Matches function is BridgeU's most useful tool, along with the capacity to provide guidance and monitoring for references and personal statements.
Since CATS began to use BridgeU, the customer support team has provided help face-to-face and online. The platform was introduced to all students, and the team has provided additional support for technical issues, as well as offline guidance on how to get the most out of BridgeU. Results have improved since CATS implemented BridgeU, and the process of managing university applications has become easier. CATS has enjoyed “easier monitoring and support / advice” with the help of BridgeU.
